"Excellence and ambition for all" 

Stamford Park Trust was established in February 2019 by Ashton Sixth Form College with the aim of improving the life chances of young people in Tameside. Ashton Sixth Form College was joined by Longdendale and Rayner Stephens High Schools in January 2021.

The vision for the Trust is simple; excellence and ambition for all. We aim to support young people in our Trust to become the very best they can be through a relentless focus on the quality of teaching and learning, outstanding pastoral support and a rich and varied enrichment curriculum which provides the space and opportunity to develop key skills for the future.

The school benefits from a strong collaboration and partnership that supports our developments and innovations across a wide range of areas from curriculum design and classroom teaching to leadership development and facility sharing.

We encourage all students to participate in our flagship ‘Realising Aspirations Programme’, designed to help students develop both academically and personally, and prepare for a bright future ahead, whether at university, in higher level apprenticeships or in the world of work.

At Rayner Stephens, we're proud to have your child as part of the Stamford Park Trust family.
